Photographer's Note

One of the advantages of mosques is that you can sit on the floor. The floor is covered by soft carpets that are vacuum cleaned every day and kept clean by the habit of taking off shoes on entering. Moreover, you can lean or even lay on the carpeted floor - usually face down in pray. I did it somewhat unusual: I lay down on my back - face and camera up, stopped breathing for a moment and took this shot of the ceiling of the Sehzade Mosque built 1534-1548 by the great Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan. You can find more facts about the mosque from my workshop photo.
